So by the sensor you mean the fan switch? If you bypass the fan switch and go directly to the battery, does the fan kick on? It could be a blown motor in the fan. If that's the case, you can get a thin, through-core cooling fan for quite a bit less than an OEM replacement, just get the highest CFM rating you can get. I hear that FAL makes a great dual-fan that fits the Saturn radiator core perfectly.

The other thing is how high up on the gauge is it?

If the maxi fuse for the cooling fan is ok then check the connector at the coolant temp sensor to see if it is corroded. If so replace it. Also try swapping the cooling fan relay with another one in the fuse block to see if that does anything.

What do you mean by overheats?

Do you mean that when you stop at a light or slow traffice, the needle will go up to 3/4 point and then it'll slowly go down?

If so, it's normal.

You can go ask every saturn tech, they'll tell you the same thing.

The fan wasn't design to kick on until aroudn the 3/4 mark, and that freaked a lot of onwers out because they thought their cars were overheating, but not realizing as long as the needle doesn't go into the RED zone, they're fine.

If you don't like it, do a search for MANUAL FAN SWITCH.

Default Overheating

I have the same problem with mine. The temp gauge would get to about the half way point and the coolant would start boiling out of the reservoir. Turn on the AC and the fan comes on and the temp drops. I changed the coolant temp sensor and no luck.
